BiogEbenezer Owers was brought to Celtic in December 1913 and handed the impossible task of replacing the great Jimmy Quinn.
Owers moved to Parkhead on loan from Clyde where he had dropped out of the first team picture. Despite this Celtic manager Willie Maley believed Owers could do well leading the Celtic front line. He is said to have said on the chance with Celtic that "I felt like doing the tango!".
He certainly made a good start by scoring on his debut as Celtic defeated Third Lanark 3-0 in a league clash at Parkhead on December 6th. He continued to net frequently in the league as Celtic took the championship but a poor performance in the Scottish Cup final at Ibrox against Hibs saw him dropped for the replay and returned to Clyde.
By then Owers had scored a great 11 goals in 16 Celtic appearances.
He may not have won a medal in that cup final but he did help Celtic win the 1914 league championship in Celtic's last double season for forty seasons.
